Compensation

Compensation packages at Wildwood School are competitive. Teachers at Wildwood School participate in a four-tiered compensation model. Those new to Wildwood, no matter their experience, are placed in band one, with an opportunity to move to band two some time after two years. Faculty members remain in band two, the most common band where many will spend their careers, for at least six years. Bands three and four are reserved for senior members of the faculty who have participated in a rigorous process that ties their performance to the standards that research and experience have shown to be most relevant to student learning.

All full-time employees—faculty and non-teaching staff—have access to generous benefits that include medical, dental, vision, retirement, long term disability, and life insurance. More detailed information regarding contributions to retirement funding, specifics about medical plans, and the like are available upon request.
